    Default Cable Tray - Hatch Patterns

    We just rolled out Revit MEP 2011 and I have a quick question about the new cable tray feature. Is there a way to apply a hatch pattern to the surface, or modify the material? I see that they're system families, so the "edit-ability" is limited. We currently use a custom made family that looks great on the drawings, but cumbersome to use. The new command would work great if we could only add a surface pattern to it.

    I would appreciate the advice. Thanks.

    You can use a Filter to find the cable tray then apply a surface pattern to it, finding all sizes greater than zero would get them all.

    The easiest way to begin with is to use filters.

    Go to Visibility Graphics and the filters tab.

    Create a new filter for cable trays AND fittings with whatever filter you want to aply (say service type = power)

    For this filter you can add a pattern for the projection/ surface, including any colouring you want.
